's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h

away, we're taking a very in depth look all week long at latinos in america, which is a key voting bloc in this election. this is the latest cnn orc poll of latino voters. president obama, the clear favorite over mitt romney, leading 70% to 26%. you can fairly say that's not even close and it is well outside the margin of error and that's critical because you know there is a saying that there is power in numbers. at least 12.2 million people expected to show up at the polls on election day. but that's barely half of latinos who are eligible to vote. and it could come down to location, location, location. the hispanic vote could be the deciding factor in several states, including the swing state of nevada. which is where miguel marquez takes us in the battle to win their vote. >> reporter: it might sound like mexico. but this is the fight for the white house. welcome to washo county, nevada, the front line in this battleground state. washo county's 250,000 voters are expected to decide whether the nevada goes blue or red. and latinos, about 30,000 votes here, could make the critical diff

color. maria theresa kumar is president and ceo of vote latino and professor james peterson is professor of african studies at lehigh university. mitt romney's record may be instructive. as governor of massachusetts he gutted affirmative action in the dead of night, during a holiday, without any consultation whatsoever. is this an example of how minorities would fare under a president romney? >> i think it's also indicative just yesterday "the wall street journal" asked mitt romney if he believed in affirmative action, he couldn't answer yes on no, he kept quiet. if he can't give a straight answer on an issue that's not a campaign issue is incredibly telling. this issue before the supreme court, it's supported by 17 senators both democratic and republican. the military is in support of it, as are a lot have business leaders. fortune 100 companies. they are support ty because they recognize demographics are changing. as americans we should make sure we have a fair shot at the american dream, through our educational system. >> absolutely. professor, we know where mitt romney stands. as for

like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got
for months that african-americans and latinos have been very supportive of the president. and one indication with latinos we have seen in a recent poll is that enthusiasm has continued to go up. this is very important for the president because it translates that support into votes. but even more importantly, what we have seen is very high levels of enthusiasm in battleground states. so we see about 50 to 55% enthusiasm for the election. but when we look at nevada and florida, we're seeing upwards of 70%. on the flip side with women, we're seeing a bit more of uncertainty. in the past couple polls in the past two week, we have seen some bopping around. and in 2010 the republican party made gains with women in the midterm election. >> in terms of enthusiasm, one way we can look at that is to see how much endurance people are willing to invest in the process of voting. i want to show you a picture that our producer tweeted out today. people trying to vote in north houston. this was the overflow room for early voting in houston, texas. just a huge crowd of people turning out in order to stand in
and getting the data from the state election offices. this is what she found. in colorado, a large latino population, this is how many new voters signed up as democrats in 2008 looking at the period from january to october. this is how many new voters signed up as republicans in the the same time period in 2008. a big advantage for the democrats. just colossal. that was 2008 in colorado. now look at what has happened in the same time span this year in 2012. democrats have improved their number some over even what they had in 2008. look at the republicans. the republicans in colorado, they improved their numbers a lot. the democrats have lost the colossal part of what had been their colossal advantage in new voter registration in colorado. let's go to iowa. look at this. from january to october, that sweet spot again in 2008, new democratic registrations outpaced republican registrations in iowa by almost 8 to 1. look at 2012. look at the difference. that's negative. look at those numbers. that's 0 in the middle. where did all the democrats go? the democrats have lost, not gained, lost alm
where they can get latinos to vote for them. >> yeah. >> bill: and just six years ago "the new york times" reporting this morning 56% of latinos were against same-sex marriage. today, 52% of latinos support same sex marriage. the politics changing across the board. certainly among young people. >> right. >> bill: this is a big winner for those who support same-sex marriage and loser for those trying to stop it. >> the republicans are getting beaten badly, mitt romney among latinos. if he loses this election, that's going to be the post script of why he didn't court them better and going to the right on deportation. republicans say some republicans say if mitt romney loses, maybe we just get immigration reform off the table, because we're getting hammered on that and thinking maybe we'll appeal to the social conservative latinos polls show that may not work, especially going in that direction. >> bill: boehner is just doing this on his own right using available funds for a speaker. >> as speaker, you can direct the house counsel to get involved in cases. this has been going on for qu
about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning machines and paper ballots. hos

in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a more important issue than immigration. so no doubt the latino vote will be key. coming up this weekend, soledad o'brien follows two people in nevada who are trying to tip the scales in their party's favor. watch "latino in america: courting their vote." that is sunday at 8:00 p.m. >> interesting. >>> 43 minutes after the hour. confusion about early voting in the tampa area. the election supervisor says a call from organizing for america, a democratic community organizing group, prompted hundreds of phone calls about early voting. the call was actually about filling out absentee ballots at election offices. early voting, which is different, doesn't start until the 27th in florida. >>> issue number one in america, jobs. who has them and who can create them? cnn fact checking both candidates' claims about the job market. that's coming up f
is not just the latino vote but immigration. i have a quick clip i want to play from the way mr. romney responded to a question, a very conservatively worded question. a woman asking about what the candidates would do about people who don't have green cards but who are productive members of the society. this is mr. romney's response in part. >> i will not grant amnesty. i'll put in place an employment verification system and make sure employers who hire people who come here illegaly sanctioned for doing so. so for instance, i would not give driver's licenses to those who have come here illegally, as the president would. the kids of those that came here illegally. those kids should have a pathway to become a permanent resident. >> on that specific issue mr. romney promised to veto the dream act. president obama took it to him on that issue. >> i think it was a big missed opportunity when talking to latinos particularly in nevada and colorado. much of the answer was formulated on what he's not going to do. what he's going to oppose as to what he's going to do for the community. to underst
as of late show a strong trend towards mitt romney. host: what do you think about immigrants and the latino community? caller: they have always had a higher percentage of latino voters were voting for republicans than the other states. that is attributed to the elected leaders reaching out to the voters. historically they have had over 40% voting. president bush had over 50%. governor bush would get even 60% of the latino voters. this is not a typical state in terms of latina support. host: this story, immigration reform, the mitt romney softening stance putting of hard-liners. mitt romney, having to walk a fine line between latino voters and keeping his conservative base happy when it comes to cases like immigration. host: he can work on a bipartisan immigration bill that satisfies the conservatives. as the chairman of the american conservative union, i have a lot of input on the issue. basically, look, border security and law and order are key. conservative folks do not like the idea of the legal status in this country. -- illegal status in this country. the devil is in the details, of co
county. i don't know who chose that audience, 90 minutes one african-american and one latino. the president did well but i had to say that for the record. >> lawrence o'donnell is in the spin room right now. >> i want to go right to the last question and the last response that the president gave where he brought up mitt romney's 47% comment made on a video that he didn't know was being recorded. was it a strategic decision of the campaign to save that 47% reference for the last minute of this debate tonight? >> well, i heard what steve schmidt said and i would love to take credit for strategic brilliance, that's the way the debate fell. i know the president wanted to engage on that. i think he was unwilling to accept governor romney's explanation that this long explication in front of a closed-door audience on the 47% was some sort of a misstatement. it clearly wasn't. it's a statement of philosophy. it's a philosophy that animates all of his policy and positions. and it does -- it is disdainful of large numbers of people who are working hard, who have worked hard. so it goes

and the president of voter latino. steve, a new political poll shows the president getting high marks for personal likability, as you can see. well ahead of romney. does he risk that likability by going in tomorrow and throwing some punches? >> to a certain extent, but i happen to think that's a little bit of an overrated concern because you saw the opposite. you saw, i think, the strategy the last time was to preserve the likability. entirely different problem developed, and that is the guy just looked weak. he looked like he didn't have any fight, didn't have any life in him. i think there's a hope on viewers' parts they're going to he see the guy has some blood in his veins. if that means pressing romney harder, if that means raising questions about romney's tax plan that he didn't raise in the first debate very aggressively, i think that's a chance at this point -- >> the 47% for example. >> being too nice just gave romney one of the biggest debate bounces we've ever seen. >> maria teresa, in the first debate we heard very little about issues specifically affecting women. now, do you think tho
, massive lead with blacks, latinos, unmarried women, do you think that that maintains and helps protect the small lead that he has? >> i think it does and i think it is what's keeping states like colorado and virginia close. i think the national polls show obama with an overwhelming advantage among nonwhite voters and even though he's fallen off a lot with white voters looks like he's at the threshold to win if nonwhite voiters turn out the same rate four years ago. i don't think we know whether or not they will but if the ground game and enthusiasm regenerates, romney would struggle to overcome that especially in nevada and virginia and to a lesser extent south carolina and florida. >> if you look at the snap polls, they have romney squarely winning on the economy. ybs with 65% to 34%. if we believe what we believed all year the economy is most important to voters and giving the win overall to obama, then what is this sort of portend? that the economy's going to be an important issue and like obama so much to forget that it's so bad? what do you make of that? >> i have one question abo
